flying foxes(the fish not the bat)
 
i don't know if anyone has them here but they just don't get enough press :D i've personally have both false and true ffs without any problems whatsoever and they eat the fuzzy algae which nothing else will touch http://www.fishforum.com/userpix/729...he_woods_1.jpg

LOL-The flying foxes just don't eat the algae diligently compared to the wee true SAEs.;)

Oh, I see what you mean.:) It's the false SAEs here that seem rarer than the true ones.:)

i have a false flying fox, and he does a good job at cutting down the little algae. he can be seen nibbling at the glass etc... surprised yours doesnt.
